Located near Soerendonk in the Dutch province of North Brabant, Het Zuyderblad is a fruit and vegetable farm – and the first commercial tea plantation in The Netherlands. Alongside asparagus and strawberries, several thousand tea plants are cultivated across three tea gardens. The leaves from these young bushes are then processed in-house using artisan techniques and methods.
